The Big Business Of Porn Parodies

Speaking of erotic fan fiction, Buzzfeed has a great profile today of prolific porn director Axel Braun. The ambitious auteur has made some of the most beloved porn parodies including adaptations of Star Trek, Star Wars, The Dark Knight and many more. Braun, a lifelong comic book nerd, has an obsession for detail and makes an effort to recreate the look of the original blockbusters on a tiny fraction of their budgets.  He takes pride that some fans ignore the lengthy XXX cuts of his films and skip to the sex-free versions on DVD. Buzzfeed’s Tessa Stuart found him on the set of his upcoming Man of Steel porn parody. Here’s a revealing excerpt:

Before he can finish his thought, Braun is interrupted by Man of Steel XXX’s director of photography, Eli Cross. “You have an RV,” Cross shouts from across the soundstage. “Please go to it.”

Braun looks up to see the actors getting in position. “Oh — sex?” he asks.

“Yes,” Cross says patiently, waiting for Braun to leave.

“I do not shoot the sex,” says Adult Video News’ three-time Director of the Year as he exits the hangar. He walks into an air-conditioned luxury RV emblazoned with the Axel Braun Productions logo, and shuts the door.

That’s right, Braun doesn’t even shoot the sex for his porn parodies. Read more about Braun and the big business of porn parody at Buzzfeed.

How Common is Throat Cancer from HPV?

Actor Michael Douglas made news over the weekend by revealing that his recent illness from throat cancer was the result of contracting HPV from cunnilingus. (Yesterday, he seemed to walk back that claim.) Whatever the facts in Douglas’ case, the story highlights a growing concern among medical professionals about the link between HPV and oral cancer. From Jezebel:

Every year in the U.S., about 5,600 men contract cancers of the oropharynx (back of throat), but many of these cancers are related to tobacco and alcohol use, not HPV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A recent study on the prevalence of oral HPV infection in the U.S. found that HPV infection is the principal cause of a specific form of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma that is increasing in incidence among men in the United States, but acknowledged that little is still known about the epidemiology (the study of disease/its prevention) of oral HPV infection.

So, basically there’s a risk, but experts still don’t know how great that risk is. The article goes on to acknowledge that drinking and smoking are two of the primary causes of throat cancer, and may have been contributing factors in Douglas’ illness.

Still, for those of us concerned about the risks associated with HPV and oral sex, there’s a solution. The CDC recommends the vaccine Gardasil for men and women, beginning at 11 and up to age 26. In the meantime, Douglas’ comments have begun an important conversation on HPV and safer sex.

The Orgasmatron

0

by thepleasurechest

In Woody Allen’s 1973 comedy Sleeper, “The Orgasmatron” was a futuristic machine that gave instant sexual pleasure to its users. A couple would step inside and emerge moments later, disheveled and satisfied.

Dr. Stuart Meloy thinks he may have discovered a real life Orgasmatron. Originally developed as a spinal cord stimulator for pain relief, Meloy’s device has also proven effective at triggering orgasmic responses in men and women. Here’s how i09 described it back in 2008.

orgasmatronA small box about the size of an Altoids tin is attached to two thin wires that snake under your skin and attach to the nerves in your spine responsible for sexual pleasure. Send electricity through the wires, stimulate the nerves, and watch the hot results.

Of course, the downside to this Orgasmatron is that you’ll need to have it surgically-implanted in your body. But as the video above suggests, it may not be long before a wireless version is invented. In the meantime, may we suggest the most reliable Orgasmatron we know of?

Harry Reems, RIP

reems

Today we learned about the passing of porn legend Harry Reems who starred in the breakthrough adult film Deep Throat. Born Herbert Streicher, Reems, a former Marine, starred in over 100 adult features, but Deep Throat was his most notorious film. Reems was paid $100 for a day’s work on set. When the film’s release created a nationwide controversy, Reems was federally prosecuted “for conspiracy to distribute obscene material across state lines.” The conviction was later overturned.

Reems always wanted to cross over into mainstream movies and was even cast in Grease before being fired due to his past.

“Acting was my true love, and I buried that possibility by going into adult films,” Reems told Dave Itzkoff for a 2005 New York magazine piece. “The writing was on the wall. There was no place for me in conventional entertainment.”

In the 80s, Reems moved to Park City, got sober and reinvented himself as a real estate broker. Reems kept his porn name.

“The past, is the past,” he would tell clients.

Read his obituary at the New York Daily News and the Chicago Tribune.
